Not a whole lot known about these. They did use two manufactures of engines. One from Briggs model NP with a different lever operated kick start. &  a Continental AA7 kick start. Both  engines used a ign key operated switch. External Battery was used for lighting which was housed in a container and in most cases the cover was missing when one of these power bikes where found.

1948 Powerbike

When I got the Powerbike it had never been attached to a bike. All the parts were in paper envelopes sealed. Everything was there. I do not think the fellow who bought it in 1948 ever started it. No gas was ever in the tank. All the parts to the 1948 Western Flyer are new from a box. The Speedo, front wheel brake, hub caps, headlight, and Western Flyer pedals. I rechromed everything and painted everything original colors. The tire is an original B.F. Goodrich. The seat has original covering. I shot ether in the carb and it fired on the second kick. It's an amazing piece.
